Penalties Levied Against Gibbs & Byron

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR officials handed out two sizable penalties Tuesday for rough driving, docking William Byron and Ty Gibbs for their roles in separate incidents during Sunday’s Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Gibbs was fined $75,000 and Byron hit with a $50,000 penalty. Gibbs, 19, was not issued a points penalty since he is an Xfinity Series regular who does not collect Cup Series points. He was fined $15,000 for making contact with Sam Mayer’s car in the pits after an Xfinity Series race at Martinsville in April. Byron, who drives for Hendrick Motorsports, was third in the Cup Series Playoffs with a 17-point cushion above the elimination line before the penalty. NASCAR officials acknowledged missing the incident between Byron and Hamlin during Sunday’s race.
